Refreshed 2022 Silverado Has One of Biggest Screens In Its Class49
The all-new interior of the refreshed 2022 Silverado offers one of the biggest infotainment touchscreens in its class at 13.4 inches. And when we include the new, 12.3-inch all-digital instrument cluster, the refreshed Silverado is even more impressive against Chevrolet’s full-size pickup truck competitors.
A tentpole feature of Chevy’s 2022 Silverado refresh was an upgraded interior that is standard on LT trim levels and above (LT Trail Boss, RST, ZR2, LTZ, High Country). The updates included revamping the center stack and replacing the 8-inch center stack display with the beautiful widescreen center display infotainment touchscreen. This compliments the Silverado’s first-ever, fully configurable, digital instrument cluster, which replaces the traditional setup of analog gauges with a 4.2-inch vehicle information display used in pre-refresh Silverado models starting with the 2019 model year.
However, any 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 trim levels below LT – Work Truck, Custom, and Custom Trail Boss – will retain the 7-inch center stack display and 3.5-inch vehicle information display, as they did prior to the refresh.
By comparison, the 2022 Ford F-150 offers an 8-inch center stack display that can be upgraded to a 12-inch unit, while the base model has a 4-inch vehicle information display that can be upgraded to a 12-inch, fully-digital instrument cluster.
Note that Ford’s new electric truck, the 2022 F-150 Lightning, has a 15.5-inch vertical center stack center display and 12-inch digital instrument cluster as standard. For the purpose of our comparison here, we’ll stick with internal combustion engine models. Also note that we’re comparing the latest model year available for each truck as of this writing.
Like the F-150 Lightning, the 2022 Ram 1500 also offers a vertical screen. Its 12-inch center stack display is offered on higher trim levels, replacing the standard 8.4-inch screen. The base truck only offers a paltry 5-inch center screen along with a 3.5-inch vehicle information center. Higher trims get a 7-inch version with no option to upgrade to a fully-digital instrument cluster.
The all-new 2022 Toyota Tundra comes with an 8-inch center display that can be upgraded to a 14-inch display – the largest among full-size trucks. Additionally, the new Tundra offers a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster as standard on all trims.
On the 2021 Nissan Titan, the standard 8-inch center display can be upgraded to a 9-inch one. And like the Ram, Nissan does not offer an option to upgrade to a digital instrument cluster on the Titan, offering instead a large vehicle information center at 7 inches.
|2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500||2021 Ford F-150*||2022 Ram 1500||2021 Nissan Titan||2022 Toyota Tundra|
|DIC/VID Base||3.5/4.2-inch VID||4-inch VID||3.5-inch VID||7-inch VID||12.3-inch DIC|
|DIC/VID Optional||12.3-inch DIC||12-inch DIC||7-inch VID||7-inch VID||12.3-inch DIC|
- CDIT: Center Display Infotainment Touchscreen
- DIC: Digital Instrument Cluster (all-digital, configurable gauge cluster)
- VID: Vehicle Information Display (digital screen with analog gauges)
- * 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning has standard 15.5-inch CDIT and 12-inch DIC
Overall, the 13.4-inch center display infotainment touchscreen on the 2022 Silverado is larger than those offered by the Ford F-Series and Ram, while being slightly smaller than the all-new Toyota Tundra.
During the first nine months of 2021, Silverado sales were flat at 414,389 units. That places Chevy’s full-size truck family behind Ram in second and Ford in first in the sales ranks. But factoring in Sierra sales, GM is well ahead of not only Ram by 170,803 units, but also Ford by 70,744 units.

|MODEL||YTD 21 / YTD 20||YTD 21||YTD 20||YTD 21 SHARE||YTD 20 SHARE|
|RAM RAM PICKUP||+8.04%||434,772||402,410||26%||24%|
The results give the Silverado a 25 percent segment share, flat on an annual basis. Meanwhile, the Sierra saw its segment share increase 1 percentage point to 11. Combined, the two full-size GM truck families accounted for a 36 percent segment share compared to 32 percent for Ford and 26 percent for Ram. We fully expect the 2022 model year refresh to substantially help Silverado grow sales after it launches, so long as supply is not hindered.

On a side note, the refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 differs from the 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 Limited, the latter of which is offered as a “stop-gap” model that bridges the pre-refresh 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500 and refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500. The refresh was originally slated to arrive early in the 2022 model year, but was pushed back due to a variety of complications and delays stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Order books for the refreshed 2022 Silverado 1500 will open in December, with the first units set to arrive at dealers in the spring of the 2022 calendar year.

The last interior shot shows how useless GM’s digital clusters have been and continue to be. 50% of that area is blank. The clock and OAT are giant. How about they sell in-car data subscriptions by putting weather forecasts on. Warning of upcoming rain would add to safety. Calculate sunrise and sunset from the GPS data you already have. Fuel economy is a plain number. They could show instantaneous and average. Put a bar chart on, show trends. Nope: a single huge number.
The coolant temperature gauge is comically oversized and makes the cluster look asymmetric instead of adding, say transmission fluid temp or oil temp.
The drive summary screen could show a thumbnail map of where you started and ended. It also should tell you how much gas you used and the average speed, instead of having to multiply and divide yourself. And how about we keep a trip meter always visible?
They engineer the displays for the lowest common denominator so that the high model shows the exact same info and wastes all the space. There’s four needles on the mechanical model, so they only put 4 digital gauges on.
Ford and Ram trucks actually use that extra digital space to show more info, allow customization. GM just does the bare minimum. Why bother paying extra?
Yeah because you really need to know sunrise and sunset from your truck’s dash screen lol. Since there’s already an in-vehicle weather app through OnStar that can be accessed from the center screen, I wouldn’t be surprised if you can add it to the dash screen and we just haven’t seen it yet. There will be a screen that shows average, instant, and best fuel economy, just like the last Silverado’s. And like the Corvette dash screen, I’m sure you will be able to customize a lot of it, maybe adding some of the other over the top things you mentioned. For every guy like you who wants to drive a computer, there are 2 others who would rather have a simplified driving experience (don’t forget most new truck buyers are over 40). I think this refresh is and will continue to be a massive success for GM.
You need to find away to get some common sense.
Think about how many accidents would happen from those distractions.
I can just see it now. Lights flashing audio alerts going off. “WARNING RAIN AHEAD”
OMG, I guess I need to pull over there’s rain ahead.
Shut your mouth!!!!
This is getting ridiculous. This is a truck, not a Mac computer. Jesus
I don’t get it, either, but if you insist on having all this expensive, soon to be outdated tech in your pickup, at the very east, the screen should display the cheapest gas and beer within a 50 mile radius. If you’re committing to pay for one of these monstrosities, you’ll need plenty of both to get you through.
Jesus isn’t real so you are right it’s ridiculous for you to make that comparison.
Calm down, Andy. Calm down. Lol
I am calm. Go pray about it
The thing I am surprised about is no one, even the new EV makers have incorporated a programmable display. It should be easy to allow the customer to have a toolbox of widgets that can be positioned on the screen. The widget should be resizable and stretchable. The colors should be programmable as should the font. The indicator should be able to be a bar, slider, circular gauge, text only… Lastly the widget stack order should be programmable, so if 2 widgets overlap, which one is on top. They could even add trigger conditions, like if tire temp < 100, show blue tire icon. A little complicated to do without a mouse/keyboard but should be easy to add a blutooth keyboard/mouse interface. And of course the user should be able to setup a couple of their favorite display styles and be able to switch between them. Just see Tcl/Tk for an example of how easy it is to create widgets. Most these infotainment systems are running Linux, and Tcl/Tk is available on that platform.
The New Tesla Model S has that and I would assume since the rumor of Cybertruck utilizing same screen it will as well.
new dash is very impressive. should help even more for GM to dominate truck sales!
I like the new dash as well but I still do not understand the decision to still utilize last Gen Interior. Just GM beancounters being idiots yet again in the interior department.
From what I’ve seen the interior and dash are very impressive. Probably give me more information than I need to know or want. Now when can I order one??
They need massage seats like the Ford.
Go buy a luxury sedan then, for the love of god these yuppies with zero need for a truck need to stop buying them, prices and useless features are getting out of hand so they can have a macho looking truck to drive when they really want and need a fancy German luxury car. These guys are the reason the off road packages come loaded, when those guys never take them outside of a dirt parking lot at their kids games, and those that could actually use a good off road package to get around the back country don’t want to do that in an 80k box checker, so they are stuck with open diffs and stock ground clearance.
@Commonselnse: Well said, well said.
Just FYI, the Tundra digital display is not standard across the line as stated. There is even press photos of a 2022 Tundra with analog gauges.
Looks ok but I hate the console shifter , Looks like they had to keep up with fords
100%…huge improvement, but why a shifter on the console….it takes up so much space! You don’t need a cartoon-size lever on a console to flip an electric switch. In my mind, this would be a perfect application for a Mercedes-like toggle on the steering column…it’s out of the way, everyone is used to the column, and it’s so stupid simple….tap up for reverse and down for drive, and goes automatically to “Park” when you turn it off. And you get all that space back.
Overall though, they did a great job on a badly needed update. I’m sure it’ll be well received.
I went to a screening to give input on the redesigned silverado and sierra exteriors and interiors, and it looks like the next gen will move just to that. The concepts they showed had that same set up which I was very happy to see (I really hope they go that route with the next gen Colorado/Canyon, if there is a vehicle that needs to free up console space it is the twins), and just like they unveiled the 2022 Interior had the console shifter and same layout, so I have high hopes that redesign has the stalk on the column as most of the sketches showed that setup. We shall see, never understood the desire of a console shifter in an automatic. You never touch them, if they have paddles especially you just put it in manual mode, otherwise transmissions are so smart these days they do all the work for you…
Wow! I remember getting pulled over 25 years ago because I had my small dash-mounted 5″ TV on.
That is because you were a dip sh*t watching TV while driving. For some reason 3rd manufacturers think it is ok to jailbreak these screen to be able to play movies and stream netflix while driving. People like you are part of the reason I have stopped riding a motorcycle regularly. Seems half the drivers I see are on their phones when I pass, don’t need some distracted dumbasz taking me out while checking facebook or watching hulu…
Thanks for the compliment on my 55-year driving experience. But you really don’t know thewhole story. It wasn’t actually on the lower part of the dash so the kids could see it. The cop did not see the actual TV but the tiny glow from it. I got no ticket and he was OK where it was. I wasn’t even watching it. This was way back in the 80s when vans were doing that “high-tech” tv thing. I’ve been riding bikes too for 50 years and have nearly 2 million miles driving my vehicles during the 45 years I was in business. And Only one accident…NOt Watching TV!! But, yes!! Thanks for confirming something I never knew about my dips*t personality. Sure makes my life at 66 so much better know people know more about me than I do myself. Ok, now Im off to smoke the tires
Nice insult do you feel better now?
I think the 14″ Tundra display looks scabbed on. And note that it is an option.
The Silvy display is standard on LT and up trims…
The new Silverado interior is better looking than the Tundra and is light years ahead of any truck interior GM has ever had.
I still prefer HUD for certain readings instead of looking around, scrolling through features and focusing on 2 different screens just to know how fast I’m going, how many fuel miles I left, and lol… what radio station I’m listening to or which one I want to change it too… lol
Don’t get me wrong, love the screens and certainly the options to view on those big screens like the navigation.
I don’t know about you guys, keeping my eyes on the road during heavy rain and snow storms is bad enough but not too mention during stop and go rush hour traffic is beotch…
The center console and the shifter gizmo just aren’t large enough!
You would think GM would put this much effort into making a reliable Truck.
And we would think you would put this much effort into moving out of your mom’s 1 bedroom apt. Now go along back to your Toyota fan boy site where you can all tell each other lies about how good Toyota’s really are (not)!
Says the guy who drives a Volvo.
Denny: Hmmm. Let me thing on that for just one second. Ok, done.
Toyota vs. Volvo. Got it, you must be another Toyota troll. Go back to your Toyota fan-boy site and have fun. I may not be the happiest with my Volvo and will probably never get another one, but it has nothing to do with the car as much as it has to do with me being loyal to American brands and my next vehicle will certainly be an American brand again.
Lol your next car? I drive a Yukon which is an American made vehicle you sir drive a Volvo. So how exactly is that loyal to American brands?
Haha, says the Toyota guy. Have you seen the reliability issues and complaints on the Tacoma? How about how far from grace they have fallen, this isn’t the 1980’s, they constantly finish last in comparison tests and their forums are riddled with complaints. If there is one thing GM knows how to do it is build a truck. May not have the fanciest interior, and like any manufacturer can have the rogue defect from a supplier but for the most part they are dead reliable.
@Commonsense: The reason people like them come on a GM site is because they are making up for their shortcomings with the brand they so love. What the heck, if you can’t read nice things on the Toyota site, why not come to other sites and troll.
Common sense I agree it’s pitiful in the Silverado forum I feel bad for those guys with there big fancy trucks having all these issues.
so when does the yukon denali receive these upgrades?
Does anyone know if GM (and any of them for that matter) actually tests this stuff out with the people who actually use a truck for a truck? Do they field test it? Or is this stuff like these huge screens just to sell to the city-life truckers?
Having grown up on a farm, I just can’t imagine using this stuff with work gloves one, with straw stuck to them and mud clumps or whatever. Maybe I’m just getting too old.
Boy Howdy, Dan. You got that right. Well stated. Whether we agree or disagree, I miss your thoughtful insights either way. Unfortunately for all of us who fondly recall saner times, Clown World really is inescapable nowadays.
Nope, they just send the invites to those who buy the top 2 or 3 trim levels to come in and give their thoughts on what to do for the next gen.
Commonsense: Now that is sad. These are trucks and they need to remember who put trucks where they are: Farmers, ranchers, construction workers, etc. It’s too bad that those city-folks wanting trucks with every option only drives the price up for those workers who use trucks for trucks.
The big screen is only on the LT and up trims… all the lower trims still have the older interior… but why in God’s name are you not taking off your mud and hay covered gloves when you climb in your truck? Geez. Take some pride in what you’re able to buy with government incentives and subsidies…
At least they use trucks as trucks ,Not just to ride around town in and look macho, They are out there working hard for us to keep something in our mouth
The elites and tech goons are driving up the prices and complexity of all vehicles, not just pickups. While luxe-tech showboat pickups are a flagrant and comical example, the sad truth is all new automobiles are becoming less and less affordable for everyday people as they’re more and more being catered to the wealthy. This is also how the ruling class Builds Back Better to “save the planet” – by forcing the unwashed masses out of car ownership and into rideshares and public transportation. It has become patently evident that the future of personal transportation is class based and what is good for me is clearly not for thee.
Building ridiculously overpriced boulevard cruisers for nearly 100K doesn’t mean that options for those less well off aren’t being made available. These car buildings are grabbing the cash that the wealthy are swimming in. No surprise. there. But you can still buy a new car in the teens and a new work truck in the mid 20’s. And the Building Back Better you refer to includes a considerable amount for roads and bridges, not just mass transit. Clearly the “elites” (whoever the heck they are) aren’t just focused on ruining your good time.
Please provide the expansive list of new cars available in the teens. Focus on those larger and better made than a Yugo.
You can have a stripped work truck in the mid-twenties – if the dealer’s dealing – or ramp right up to $40-50K plus if you want the slightest bit of style. Yeah, that’s reasonable – “let them eat cake”, right?
Personally blown away by all the “affordable” new cars being sold in gm dealerships. In the current atmosphere, the $84K CT5-V Blackwing is actually a stunning bargain considering the cars it’s on par with are well over $100K.
How many cars has gm left? You can practically count them on one hand!
No, what the world obviously needs is more $70K pickups and $110K electric Hummers. Clownworld that is…
So now you want style? I thought you were looking for affordability? You’re right about GM – they can build fine, well-priced vehicles when they put their best guys on it. But they are surrendering the affordable car segments to the Koreans and Japanese brands. But for guys like Dan who want a real work truck, they’re out there too. Though I’d feel better if they had an option to remove the digital light shows for those rigs.
Isn’t stylish affordability what put GM on the map? A car for every purse and purpose? Buying a lower priced Chevrolet never meant you had to sacrifice anything. Today in America we pay through the nose for oversized showcase technology testbeds on wheels while William Durant’s philosophy is kept alive, ironically, by gm China.
Anyone know if the 2022 refresh retains the heads up display in addition to the big digital cluster and center screen?
